Well, it’s not the Emmys but it’s . . . something.
On Saturday, Sean Spicer, the former White House press secretary who was famously lampooned on “Saturday Night Live” and later celebrated at the Primetime Emmy Awards, is set to judge a local dance-off pitting “Washington famous” folk against one another for charity.
Spicer, who’s on the paid speaker circuit post-White House, joins ballroom dancer Chelsie Hightower and the Washington Ballet’s artistic director, Julie Kent, at the judges’ table for D.C.’s Dancing Stars Gala, which hopes to raise $1 million for area nonprofits.
The “stars” foxtrotting for charity include Michael D. Bellaman, president of the Associated Builders and Contractors; WUSA9’s Markette Sheppard; Fox 5 entertainment reporter Kevin McCarthy; and Miss USA Deshauna Barber, among others.
This isn’t the embattled former Trumper’s first brush with the dance floor. Back in August, TMZ reported that Spicer turned down an opportunity to tango on ABC’s competition show “Dancing With the Stars” because of an “overwhelming number of commitments in the Fall.” Guess Saturday’s show at the Sheraton Tysons Hotel is one of them.
